Bridging the gap between traditional medicine and technology
Virginia Tech now offers an undergraduate degree program in biomedical engineering as well as a minor program of study.
With the nation’s demand for health-related services, products, and professionals expected to skyrocket over the next decade, Virginia Tech biomedical engineering students will be uniquely trained to bridge the gap between traditional medicine and the technology needed to address emerging and complex health care problems.
Our program emphasizes technology transfer, engineering fundamentals, and hands-on learning opportunities. Students will have access to undergraduate research alongside program faculty, internships and clinical rotations, and innovative entrepreneurial training.
New B.S. program in biomedical engineering
Eligible students who are interested in the biomedical engineering undergraduate degree will apply for the program in the spring of 2019. The first cohort for the new degree will begin degree-specific coursework in fall 2019.
BEAM is now accepting applications for the B.S. program in biomedical engineering. Read more about the application process and requirements here.
